DoomRL 0.9.9.3 RELEASED!
« on: May 01, 2011, 15:26 »

DoomRL 0.9.9.3 has been released!

While numerous bugs have been fixed, the changes brought by this version serve but a one function: enhance the variety and mood of DoomRL and they do so by many different means.

Grab it while it's hot on DoomRL's webpage!

http://doom.chaosforge.org/

Both Windows and Linux 32-bit versions are available -- porting to Linux 64 and Mac OS X is planned, but no guarantees as for the date.

As promised, we entered a tighter release schedule -- next beta will appear for Supporters at most in a month, while the official 0.9.9.4 release is scheduled again for no later than in 4 months. Please be sure to check out the ChaosForge treasury and if you think that ChaosForge games gave you something, then why not give something back :).

First, there are numerous enhancements to the level generation - enhancements and additions. Staple of FPS genre, crates lying around randomly will now appear on previously empty levels, filling them with cover and tension - and that is just a first on a list of various additions to level generation. More, a number of new level events have been added, rendering the late game experience much more unique with lava flood, necromantic energies and much more.

Talking about levels: the DoomGuy level cap was raised from 20 to 25 to satisfy the ever growing Ao100 crowd. Along with this change, it has become possible to raise basic traits above their old caps as well - a marine on clevel 25 is now a beast nearly as powerful as Cyberdemon.

In other news: a number of new medals and badges ranging in difficulty from "absurdly easy" to "wait, what?" found its way into DoomRL too, and a few new interesting exotics (including a number of consumables), uniques and a number of assemblies joined them, increasing variability of the game even more.

Last but not least, this version marks the beginning of Grand Work of AI overhaul. Demons and lost souls were made wiser thanks to it, and this, as I have already mentioned in this very sentence is only the beginning.

He waited enough for new version of DoomRL.
He played classic Doom but not passed. He also played rogulikes. And once he found the intersection of these sets...

So suddenly!
It doesn't really feel that sudden if you donate to the Forge a bit though so you can see behind the screens a bit... I mean... I don't want to insist, but... :3

Can we get a link for Simon-V's tracks in the musicmp3.lua for the next version? Even just to the forum post would be nice.

That and please add something to the manual about creating macros in the keybindings.lua, what's already in the file might make sense to a programmer but I'm a bit lost. (that whole file is a bit obtuse now that I think of it)

The new AI is a nice start. It's a lot more interesting when you dont know where all the enemies are going to be bunched up.

I just had to create a user here to tell Kornel what a !"#%&/(&%/&% great job he's doing on DoomRL!

Definitely rooting for a Mac port of this. A donation towards that goal is a given :D
